Issuing Insurance Company and Ratings
The RetireMax Secure 5 is a deferred multi-year guarantee annuity issued by Life Insurance Co of the Southwest (LSW).
The current 5 year guarantee period annual yield is 5.25% (see Rate Details below). This is the guaranteed annual yield, including bonuses if applicable, for the initial guarantee period term, up to the first penalty free full withdrawal window. The RetireMax Secure 5 has a full penalty free withdrawal window after 5 years.
During the time in which the annuity is subject to surrender penalties, there are policy provisions that allow partial access on a penalty free basis. Beginning in the second contract year, this annuity provides up to 10% (noncumulative) of the contract value as the penalty free withdrawal amount that may be withdrawn from the annuity each contract year.
This annuity also waives withdrawal penalties upon death. Your named beneficiary(ies) will receive a death benefit equal to the full accumulation value. A beneficiary may choose to receive their death benefit in either a lump sum or select an available annuitization option.
Details on additional penalty waivers can be found in the Penalty Free Withdrawal Provisions section below.
